    Re: SLAX bootable USB

    Well, if you are on Ubuntu then your command above is incorrect.

    Code:
    Sudo ./bootinst.bat
    Sudo should be lowercase sudo and .bat is a Windows extension so won't work on Linux.

    Where did you get the instructions?

    Also, which version did you download; based on Slackware or Debian?

    Re: SLAX bootable USB

    I downloaded debian version 11.06.from slax.org. The capital S was my fault. as instructed in article I opened terminal within the drive and copied the command from article on Ubuntubuzz and paste sudo ./bootinst.bat in the terminal. Question. is there supposed to be a space between sudo and the ./ ? thanks for your help. I'm running ubuntu 18.04. https://www.ubuntubuzz.com/2022/02/h...usb-stick.html

    I'm not sure where you found those instructions but according to the Slax website, the instructions they give are here:
    https://www.slax.org/starting.php

    I don't see where they say to use sudo and anyway you would be looking for bootinst.sh and not bootinst.bat
